Michigan Probate Benchbook
 

Get the book the judges use to handle all proceedings heard in probate court, from estate and guardianship to mental commitment and civil actions. Written by ICLE for the SCAO and distributed to all probate judges and registers, this book provides practice tips from the judges and probate registers on problematic issues.

With this book, you will:

  • Recommend a partial guardianship or a protective order instead of a full guardianship
  • Pursue an appeal by right or by leave to the Michigan Court of Appeals
  • Consider the best options for obtaining involuntary treatment of one with a mental illness
  • Confidently handle even obscure cases, such as support of an impoverished person, a lost instrument, or a case under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act
